As a therapist for Gen Z and Millennials, Kalen Cobb, LSW (she/her) leverages the power of the therapeutic relationship to support individuals in creating sustainable life changes. She particularly enjoys working with women, nonbinary femmes, and girls of color who are navigating issues of anxiety, self-esteem and self-discovery, and Former Gifted Kid / Girl Boss burnout. As a human with similar identities, Ms. Cobb understands the complexities that come with navigating the world as a marginalized, high-achieving, high-masking person. Additionally, she has a background in Black, Christian liberation theology and works with clients who are deconstructing / re-constructing their faith.
Ms. Cobb maintains that therapy is not a quick-fix and requires a commitment to show up, lean into vulnerability, and be willing to practice what you learn between sessions. She sees her work as holding up a mirror to reflect clients’ inner workings and offers support to create a new path forward. Ms. Carter will do her part to provide a safe, nonjudgmental, and collaborative space to identify your needs and support your growth.
Ms. Cobb is a Licensed Social Worker (LSW) in Illinois and a Limited License Master Social Worker (LLMSW) in Michigan. The social work lens allows her to support each client as a unique individual and also understand that many of the experiences clients have, and the reactions to them, are part of complex systems, hierarchies, and power dynamics. Her work is to help clients navigate their personal challenges and advocate for macro-level policy changes to better support our lived experiences.
Outside of work, Ms. Cobb enjoys attending comedy shows, exploring new restaurants for Chicago’s best burger, and taking up new activities through the Park District.
